DirectLife Activity Monitor GIVEAWAY! (including coaching!) November 22, 2010

So you know I am pretty much in love with my DirectLife activity monitor as well as the awesome individual coaching I receive from Coach Jen. She has encouraged me, nudged me, checked up on me, and helped me to keep up with my activity goals. And I know that it has made a huge difference in my health and weight-maintenance life.

Well, the DirectLife folks are pleased that I’m pleased. And they have offered a free activity monitor including a year’s worth of individual coaching to one of my lucky blog readers!!

This is, hands down, the best giveaway I have ever had the opportunity to participate in. It’s HUGE, people! You think a box of ice cream is cool? Well, how about a year of Coach Jen (or one of her colleagues) and the best little piece of jewelry you can own???

Here’s how it will work. This prize is worth so very much more than a random comment. It’s going to take a little effort. This is what you need to do to be considered for this awesome prize.

  • Follow DirectLife (@directlife) on Twitter, and tell them, “I want to win an activity monitor from @foodiemcbody because…” (finish in 140 characters)
  • Visit the DirectLife website and determine if you think it really is a good fit for you. I don’t want to gift this item to anyone who is going to put it in their sock drawer and forget about it.
  • Then you have TWO ways to convince ME. You can record a 2-minute video, or if you are camera shy, write a 250-word blog post on WHY you think a DirectLife activity monitor with coaching will improve your health and life, and why we should choose you. Things you might include: Have you ever tried an activity gadget before? Why do you want this one? How do you intend to reach your daily activity goals?
  • Link to this post on your blog and/or your Facebook page.
  • Post a link to your video or your blog post in a comment HERE. If you do not have a blog, you can email your 250-word statement to foodiemcbody AT hot mail dot com.
  • ANYONE IN THE WORLD is eligible to win this prize! No geographical restrictions! How cool is that.
  • Deadline: Monday, December 6th, 2010 at midnight PST. I will review all entries after I get back from Las Vegas.

    Is this limited to US only or can we exotic creatures enter too?

    • I am pretty sure that exotic creatures can enter too, because it is coming from an exotic locale itself. But I will check to be 100% sure.

      • Just got the word: NO geographical restrictions! Anyone in the world can participate! yahoooooooo!!!!!!!!!!

        (but for clarification, people wanting to PURCHASE the item can only get it if you live in the US or Netherlands)

  2. Jenny Says:

    I don’t have a Twitter account. Am I still eligible, or is this only for people on Twitter?

  3. You don’t need to have a Twitter account. The main thing is the blog post/essay or video.

    I have visited the DirectLife website this monitoring system and Direct Life Coach sounds amazing. I would love to know how my activity can be improved. I used to wear a pedometer all the time but something like this just goes above and beyond that. I would totally love it!

    I will be recording my video this weekend! What a fantastic giveaway!

  21. I am throwing my name in the hat! I was hesitant to enter – I mean really, what makes me so special?!? But an amazing thing happened at school and I am entering with that story.

    Thanks Foody!! AND CONGRATS on that HALF!!! YOU ROCK!!

  23. I follow both you and DirectLife on Twitter.

  24. I visited the DirectLife site even though I’m already very familiar with the product. I’ve been considering one for a while, but the cost has held me back since I’m currently back in school and have to pay tuition and pay books again. Extras like activity monitors are a luxury now which is why it would be so great to win one.
